Crescent Cinnamon Rolls

Made these easy and delicious cinnamon rolls yesterday.
I buy the crescent rolls on sale for $1(Usually at Aldi)
They're quick, and there's very little clean-up.

1 tube crescent rolls
1/2 Tb butter
Cinnamon sugar
2 Tb tub butter
3 Tb brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tb milk
1/2 c powdered sugar

*I did not measure anything- these amounts are approximate!*
 Melt butter and wipe around bottom and edges of muffin pan.
 Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
 Divide crescent rolls into four rectangles.
Here's a tip- microwave rolls for 10 seconds to make them more pliable.
Pinch together seams.
Spread with butter.
Divide brown sugar, cinnamon, & vanilla mixture evenly over rolls.
 Rolls up starting with short end.
Cut into thirds.
 Bake 12-14 minutes.
Don't overbake them!
 Mix milk and powdered sugar.
Drizzle over rolls.
 Perfect breakfast for the first snow of the year!

Love Couponing! 37 Items for $37!

If I had to choose my favorite place to coupon it would have to be Hy-Vee.
I find this is the store I go to every single week for great deals.
And I love supporting them, rather than Wal-Mart!
And they take care of their employees, customers and our new store is so nice!
(And now I can save cents off gas for my purchases!)

Here is a haul I did just the other week.
Shopping sales and using coupons got me this haul of 37 items for $37.
It includes:
 Three things of Kemps Frozen Yogurt for $1 each!
On sale for $1.99 plus three $1/1 coupons.
 Six bags of Golden Puffs for $.09 each!
On sale for $.59 plus three $1/2 coupons.
Folgers Gourmet coffee for $3.99!
On sale for $4.99 plus $1/1 coupon.
But it's like I got it for $1 with the average of my trip.
Gerber baby food for FREE!
On sale for $1 each plus two $1/1 coupons.

I find a lot of my coupon match-ups at
She does a wonderful job posting deals for lots of stores including local ones like Hy-Vee and Price Chopper.

 And I store my coupon inserts right by the computer for easy access.
Like when the match-up says I need a coupon from the SS 11/11/12 (Smart Source)

Happy couponing and happy savings!

Time Lapse Pregancy Pictures

I just want to say thank you to my wonderful husband for taking these pictures every four weeks! He is so sweet that he was willing to take them in the same spot, at the same angle so they'd all look the same... guess I can be a little picky sometimes... :D
